Given the tumultuous development of the game so far you might be inclined to think the game will be bad upon release. However, Nintendo has always been of the stance that it is better to delay a game than release a bad one.
The fact that they were so open about restarting the project in the first place should be reassuring and help assuage any worries from the fans. It is definitely better for companies to be open about this kind of thing. It is always better to know what is going on than to have to guess.
Hopefully, these job postings mean that things are really ramping up now and we can expect to see the game near the end of next year.
It is also good to know that Retro is in charge of the game again. They were the leads on the original Metroid Prime back in 2002 and have a history of producing some truly excellent titles including the likes of Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze.
There are still rumour floating around about a Metroid Prime Trilogy collection being released on the Switch.
This was, in no small part, thanks to a retailer listed the game on their website in December and then again in March. These kinds of listings can just be speculation, but they can also prove to be a good way of finding out information well ahead of time. Just look at Rage 2, for example.
It could well be that Retro was working on the Trilogy before kicking things off properly with the Metroid Prime 4, so it’s possible that we get to see the reality of the trilogy sooner than later. Maybe even at this years E3.
Nintendo hasn’t announced firm plans around their E3 showing, only stating that they would be doing the same as they had in previous years. So, the wait continues.
